What Are the Benefits of Working with a Family Lawyer in CT?

Your Family Lawyer Can Streamline Your Legal Process While Keeping Your Best Interests at the Forefront

Are you getting divorced? Do you need an Order of Protection? Are you struggling with child custody and support issues? If so, a family lawyer can help.

If you’re one of the over 600,000 Americans going through family law complications (1), you should make sure you get the help of a legal professional before making any serious moves.

You may be nervous to get in touch with a family lawyer because you’re not sure how serious your case is, or you may be worried about confidentiality. However, you can rest assured that all the personal and financial information you share with your attorney will be kept private. Many individuals also refrain from approaching a lawyer because they are worried about the costs. However, a lawyer can help you save a lot of money by guiding you on the correct legal process and ensuring you get the assets you rightfully deserve — which makes teaming up with a lawyer well worth the investment. 

What Should I Expect In my Initial Meeting with a Family Lawyer?

When you initially meet with a lawyer, you will have to provide the details of your case and fill out a client information sheet. This data will help your lawyer gain a better understanding of your situation so they can build the strongest case to help you get the justice you deserve. In your initial meeting with a family lawyer, you will likely also have to sign a document that outlines the relationship between you and your lawyer, including the responsibilities and expectations of both parties.

What Can a Family Lawyer Help Me With in CT?

When you choose to work with a family attorney, you can benefit by saving money, protecting your assets, and improving your chances of getting the justice you deserve.

Let’s take a more detailed look at the benefits of working with a family lawyer.

Protect Your Assets

When you’re going through a divorce, your emotions are running high, and it can be very difficult to focus on the technicalities of your case. Being in such a state can cause you to overlook your rights or give up what you rightfully deserve to simply get things over with. When you work with a lawyer, they can help you stay strong and build a robust case that considers all your rights and ensures you get the money you rightfully deserve. 

Save Money in the Long-Run

Since a lawyer will help you keep fighting for the assets that rightfully belong to you, as well as the child support and spousal support you are rightfully due, this will help you save a lot of money in the long run. 

Benefit from Their Knowledge and Experience

One of the best parts of hiring a lawyer is the legal advantage you gain from their knowledge and skill. An attorney who specializes in family law can help you with a wide range of issues, including:

  • Child Custody
  • Child Support
  • Spousal Support
  • Separate Property
  • Joint Marital Property and Distribution
  • Prenuptial and Post Nuptial agreements
  • Order of Protections

If you need support with any of the above issues, you should get in touch with Heidi Opinsky, an experienced family lawyer today.

Stay Protected 

If you are worried about your safety and you are dealing with an abusive individual, having a lawyer can provide you with that extra layer of protection so you remain as safe as possible. A lawyer can help you get an Order of Protection against the abusive individual and can communicate with them on your behalf, so you do not have to deal with them directly. 

Increase Your Chances of Winning Your Case

If you are struggling with a child custody agreement or the division of your assets and you try and fight for what you want on your own, you have a high chance of losing. The reason is that the opposing party will likely have legal counsel and since you do not have a proper understanding of the law you won’t be able to create a robust case for yourself.

When you hire a lawyer, you gain the significant advantage of having their experience and knowledge on your side, so you can put up a good fight for what you truly deserve.
